Megan, Duchess of Sussex, did not attend the meeting in Sandringham with Prince Harry, but instead returned to Canada. Days after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their royal departure, Prince Harry was called to speak with his family.
The Duke met with the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William in what was called the Sandringham Summit.
Senior royalty gathered at Her Majesty’s home in Norfolk to discuss the logistics of Sussex’s new life.
According to royal experts, the queen said that Prince Harry’s semi-royal idea would not work.
A source told royal biographers Omid Scoby and Carolyn Durand: “It was untenable. If Harry and Megan were part-time royalty, there would have to be oversight of everything they did in their independent sphere, a commission approving events and deals.”
The source also said that Sussex was not allowed to use the word “royal” in its future brands.
That meant closing their social media accounts at Sussex Royal.
The Sussex are reportedly disappointed with the final decisions to leave the Royal Family.
However, Prince Harry had an important task to do before announcing the news to his wife about the meeting.

The queen said: “Today my family had many constructive discussions about the future of my grandson and his family.
“My family and I fully support Harry and Megan’s desire to create a new life as a young family.
“Although we would prefer to remain full-time members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their desire to live a more independent life as a family, while remaining a valued part of my family.
“Harry and Megan have made it clear that they do not want to rely on public funds in their new lives.
“It was therefore agreed that there would be a transition period in which the Sussex would spend their time in Canada and Britain.
“These are complex issues that my family has to resolve and there is still a lot of work to be done, but I asked for the final decisions to be made in the coming days.
Last month, Sussex fully paid £ 2.4 million to taxpayers’ money used to renovate their British base, Villa Frogmore.
The announcement came after the couple signed a multi-year production deal with online streaming giant Netflix.
A Sussex spokesman said: “The Duke of Sussex has contributed to the Sovereign Grant.
“This contribution, originally proposed by Prince Harry, fully covered the cost of renovating the Frogmore Cottage, owned by Her Majesty the Queen, and will remain the residence of the Duke and his family in Britain.”
